virginia". >> and going sfrt vote. >> and you have to eat. eat and vote. that's what you need to do. amy carter is here with us on tuesday like she is always. and you have a slightly different twist on the potato wedge. >> everybody loves potatoes. being a mom you kind of go what am i going to do now? it is french fries and that's the way to do it. and this is and what i'm using here and this is a good way to get healthy into your kids with potatoes. you use the potato and then a
sweet potato. this is not the typical orange sweet potato. it's white on the inside. as you see the kids never know they're getting good healthy. >> i wouldn't have been able to tell the difference. >> and the nice thing about this, and it is going to get there really easy. all you're doing is washing them down and cutting them into the wedges like this. we call canoe. >> canoe-shaped. >> and you preheat to 400 degrees. what i do is i like parchment paper on hand and spray the parchment paper down and this will keep the cheese from sticking on the pan and ease, easy clean up. so what you'll do is take your wedges and you'll go to add olive oil on it and be a little generous.
and then it is 2 tablespoons of oregano and as the garlic powder and minced garlic. you pour it out and just so easy to do. >> this is sort of a loaded baked potato but without the chives and the sour cream. >> exactly. >> and you can get to that with the disk and then mix it around and take a half cup or so of cheese and i have shredded cheddar and mozerella in there and then toss it around and that is it! you line them up on the parchment paper and then put in the oven for 40 minutes and come out with these. >> there you go! it really gets easier. >> and right here we have the ranch dressing and i'd rather do bleu cheese but you can have the different text between the two but they taste
>> and this is what might be and it's hard to tell. so when you're eating and they're really good. and then this and that is very lighter and sweet potato with the pink one we see and do that automatically and kids ew, i'm not going to eat that. moms can cut it up the day before and kids are getting ready and then it's really nice plus you don't use a lot of extra oil and things like that. and you still get that. >> and this is with your meatloaf and different things. and very easy preparation. >> exactly. >> little to no clean up. >> that's the whole point. get it done and they know me. i hate being in the kitchen! i cook all day!
